So, I made it to Tucson. It’s a gorgeous city, and my only complaint so far has been that Hertz’s map wasn’t quite to scale, resulting in exploring a little more than I wanted to on my way from the airport to the hotel. I’m at a Four Points Sheraton just outside the University of Arizona. Their stadium is much bigger than Frank Clair, and it looks to be in a lot better shape, too.
I have some Negra Modelo, which does not come in a twist top (thank you desk top that doubles as an opener), and a chooge burrito which was amazing. I can see the hills from my room, and it’s a pretty impressive view (the pics don’t do it justice).
It’s about 85 degrees F, and is dry as a bone, so the heat is really quite enjoyable. The pool is ready to go, and I’ll be swimming laps tomorrow instead of going for a run. It’s a nice place… I think I’m going to enjoy my trip here.
